When clearing what causes the screen flash?

It cannot be Seizure robot since I put it into storage ever since I bought it. But when I am clearing all the finished jobs and building income all of the sudden there is a screen flash. Many times it happens at the Simpsons but once it happened at the racetrack.

  • Okay that makes sense. Thanks. I guess he flashes at the end of each of his jobs? Really not a fan of flashing or strobing effects.

    Most likely this. His 8hr task make the screen flash when finished.

  • Thanks very much. I researched and couldn't find it but I'm probably the last person to realize this. :)

    Yes, this is correct, I have this every morning when clearing my 8hr tasks..
    Oh Lord!.... My town is a mess... *sigh*
  • I get it on 4 hour tasks. I think it happens when to much is tapped the same time.

    Thanks for this. I noticed it every morning when I tap the Simpson House. Yakuza Boss has his 8 hour task there. I don't notice it at any other time when I tap him though.

    i figured it had to be him, it started not long ago right after i got him and he was the only difference at the Simpsons house but i couldn't remember if it was 4hr or 8hr or both tasks

    I figured the same thing for the same reasons. I dont think i have ever used his 4 hour task yet. Just the 1 and 8

    i've used 1,4,and 8 since we got him but been super busy and haven't been paying as close attention as usual so i wasn't entirely if it was him or some glitch

    In agreement with everyone who mentioned that it's Yakuza Boss's 8 hr task. And, yes.. the flash is annoying :|

    Good info. I was surprised by the flash every time it came up. It was always in a busy area and couldn't figure out who/what caused it.

    I realized it the first time I clicked on YB's completed 8 hr task.. but only by mistake! I had the screen zoomed in to see something in front of Simpson's house and then... blast! 9oloFfp.jpg

    I only do 8 hour tasks over night, so I am generally half asleep when I am clearing it so it always startles me. The tasks is called Build Fight Drama.

    There's a few of us on this forum who aren't fond of the bright, white-lightening type flashes so I'd rather it didn't happen.. but I'll power through it :)

    This should keep you awake after that.
